Kaypi Kunan Association
We are a Peruvian association oriented in social assistance and focused on education. Kaypi Kunan means here and now in the Quechua language. Our motivation is to leave a positive footprint in the world and we want you to be part of this beautiful project in actively participating in the change that the world needs.
Every little bit counts and every action we take is a contribution to improve the conditions of many people. Through our projects we seek to strengthen and empower Andean children and adults, developing enriching educational activities that promote learning with values. We believe that supporting from within the community is the best way to increase the possibilities of development in Peru.

“My first language is Quechua, but since I was little I used the books that were in the Kids Learning Center and I learned to communicate better in the Spanish language, and that’s why I was able to study at the university in Cusco.”
